Like most Americans, it’s hard to go into Target without buying at least three items you hadn’t planned to buy. I swear, the store’s designers come out with the cutest stuff!
(Mazen agrees – he really wanted this Spiderman costume! Note his face..)
The good news is that our Target is quite a far drive up 29 North, so I don’t go all that often.
The bad news is that I know exactly where the hot spots are with new arrivals, so when I do go, I have a set path that I take through the store that inevitably leads me to the best finds.
While browsing I thought it would be fun to share the things I loved but didn’t buy for a bunch of reasons. (I’ll share links when I can in case they call to you!)
Starting with these coasters. Wood + marble catches the most Basic eye – mine!
In the same department, I loved these marble trays. Almost got them for blog photo shoots, but already have 3 marble trays – eek! (Actually the one I have is from Target!) Mazen asked “What are theeeeese?!”
And this cake stand combines the best of trendy materials : )
In the process of sharing some links with you I discovered that online almost everything in this list is 10% off. Verrrrrry formidable!
Two things I did buy:
This light saber toothbrush for Mazen. It talks and lights up while you brush! He is OB-sessed!
I used to have my cosmetics in a little chest with drawers. It was nice because they were out of sight, but annoying because I was always digging through drawers. So I did a big overhaul of all of my beauty products (which included 100 samples!) and organized things into three categories: use everyday, use sometimes, and travel and spares. I trashed or donated the rest to friends.
The “use everydays” are above in my new organizer and my vanity drawer, which has face products and lotions.
The “use sometimes” are in the chest divided by category in drawers. Face, eyes, lips, hair. This was my grandmother’s chest that was her family’s before that.
And the travel toiletries are in a bigger chest full of all kinds of extras. Hashtag drawers!
One final thing I came home with from Target – a picture with blog reader Jill who spotted me trying to convince Mazen that he had enough Batman toys at home! : )
What have you found at Target this week? (Because I know you went!)
